removing burnt sugar from a coated cookie sheet

Zengarden Oct 15, 2006 11:47 PM

How does one do this without removing the finish? I was making a pie this afternoon and some of the filling spilled onto the sheet.

Is there any way I can this off without causing further damage to the sheet?

    No problem. Believe it or not, burnt sugar is water soluble, so simply wash it with a non-abrasive scrubber and it'll come off quite easily. If you can soak the sheet beforehand, it'll be even easier.

      Definately soak--water and baking soda for a short while will do the trick as you don't want ot use any abrasives on coated 'baker's secret' type sheets.

      Watch the protective coating once you've overheated this type of sheet. Mine are starting to chip so I'm tossing them. I only use them for English Toffee, which probably exceeds their heat tolerance?
